Snowflake Placemats





Snowflake Placemats

No two snowflakes are alike, therefore, no two placemats will be alike and that’s perfectly OK. Come and learn how to piece together your snowflake, quilt and bind it to make a placemat and yes, we will be using fabric.  You will have enough fabric for two placemats; however, will only have time to construct one in class. 

Kit/Design Fee: Kit available for $7.00 (please preregister at least three days in advance to ensure your kit is ready for class).
